The Commonwealth of Sordandia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 807 million Sordandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sordantirturin. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sordandian economy, worth 83.8 trillion Sors a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,800 Sors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and supervisors in Sordandia commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sordandia's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sordandia is ranked 21,992nd in the world and 679th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 59.02 quips per hour.
